    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very professional printer I am very satisfied with the Epson XP 970 printer. Unboxing and setting up was very easy, from box to use was less than 45 minutes. First use i did ensure the test pages process was complete. So that my printing experience would go smooth. I have used it atleast 12-15 times in the last 2 weeks. I can say I am very pleased with the print, copy and scanning process. The final results come out very clean and professional looking. I am confident I can finish printing alot of my photos from home, instead of having them printed elsewhere. It prints great quality photos and documents. It is reliable and i haven't had any issues on any print jobs. I have not yet used all settings as far as printing from my phone, but i look forward to doing so. The size of the printer itself is great, especially for use at home. When not using we can store it comfortably on shelf. I would recommend this printer for anyone that use at home or office since its capable of multiple functions and easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional looking photos I received the Expressioin Photo XP-970 printer and was impressed with the details listed on the box about the product. It listed auto 2-sided print, multi paper input alimentation, mobile printing, touchscreen, CD/DVD print, memory card and wifi. Once I opened the box, everything was packaged so neatly. The instructions to install the software were pretty simple. I like the 4.3 inch touchscreen and after a couple of tries, I was able to connect to my home wifi. I had a couple of snags with Tray2. It took me a few tries to fully know where to put the paper, but I appreciated the diagram and instructions on the touchscreen to let me know what I was doing wrong. I have to print a lot of flyers for my job and this printer delivered very well. The colors in my flyers are so bright and crisp. The quality looks professional. Also, I think what makes the pictures so vivid are the options to choose what type of paper is being used. I've never seen a feature like this before. This printer packs a punch and I'm pleased with being able to print in different sizes which is good for my professional needs. I also like the size of this printer and can store it anywhere. I am also ecstatic that it automatically prints on two sizes without me having to print on one size and turn it over like my last printer. This is a great feature. I am loving this printer. The only major negative is how loud it is when setting it up. This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Received the Epson XP-970 last week. So far I am really impressed. The set up was a piece of cake. Turn on the printer and the control screen automatically lifts up. The screen has everything thing you need,, Copy scan etc. There are 2 paper cassettes. The bottom one holds the 8x10 paper and the upper one is where you put your photo paper. It seems to automatically sense what paper you have in and what size. Very happy with this. The tray that holds the finished printout Automatically expands and retracts. The only problem I had was when taking out the #1, upper cassette, I pulled out the #2 at the same time. The only problem was getting them back into place. After a few tries they clicked back in. Very happy with the printing. No empty spaces or lines.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I got this epson expression photo small in one printer and i love it. I love that the photo quality is really good and that this printer has a fax and scan feature and it makes my life and job easier due to the fact that it is wifi enabled and it has the capability to print 2 sided pages. This printer has the option to print from my mobile phone and the print is pretty quick it is only a couple of seconds so i can have my documents in my hands in a hurry. So this printer lets me go moblie since it isnt pretty big and it is not very bulky. I dont have an office space so for this printer to be smaller is a plus for me and i love that and the fact that it does not compromise in the quality of the picture print.This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.”

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Printer Review I find this printer really exceptional over the ones I have had in the past. That is including the HP one I currently have purchased 1 year ago. The setup process was easy to hookup, and the directions is simply as well. The voice talk to me is a great addition and really helps get things processed faster for me. It’s easy to use and picks up your voice automatically with no sensitivity issues. What I did find intriguing about this one was the six different cartridges they had. I processed some pictures and graphs for my business, which turned out really great. The two sided auto print is really convenient when processing documents. Everything pulls up quicker with this printer then it does with my other printer, which is quite amazing to me. This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steller printer, exceeded my expectations. I am a fan and user of Epson since years and their products have been very loyal to me. I have got an amazing experience using epson xp-970 since I love photography and art is my passion, this all in one printing, copying and scanning has helped me bring my creativity into colors and has made my work easy-breezy. Right out of the box, setting up this printer was no hassle ( if you are a frequent printer user ) and even if you're not, reading the manual would be enough to understand its features and installation. There is a CD inculded in the box which is the software that you have to download inorder to complete the setup for your computer. Additional apps are needed to be downloaded in your mobile / tablet for it to operate wirelessly e.g google print. Epson creative print app is another app where your creativity begins. It has alot of features and options which includes printing of coloring books ,create custom cards ( I created a Valentine's day card with it and it turned out fantastic), creating labels, tags , printing logos. It has a slot of cd/ dvd so that you can print directly printable cds / dvds ( useful for presentations). I am using this printer for about one week and it has literally the game changer. This printer has printing resolution 5760x1440 dpi and scanning resolution 4800 dpi which gives an incredible picture and photo print with absolute clarity and vibrant colors just like professional photos. It has outstanding features and can print photos on almost all types of papers ( i have tried on epson premium glossy paper and the results were phenomenal) with borderless photos and size up to 11 x17. The fast printing of the photos in about 10-12 second is another great feature which i would like to mention and that too with the convenience of your mobile or tablet because of the fact that its wireless with excellent connectivity not only with wifi but also with my google home and other voice enabled devices. Its lightweight, compact with sturdy built and a large responsive screen that automatically comes up when turned on and a foldable flap to scan which keeps my originals safe. I am now truly being able to enjoy all of the photos when they are gorgeously printed because viewing photos in mobile and having them printed are two different things and i believe one should definitely try and see how beautiful it feels to have them in your hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I really enjoy this printer. I have had a few Epson printers over the years, but this one is by far the best that I have used. Once I opened the box, the instructions for setup were quite straightforward. You have to do the pretty much what you have to do with most printers, like installing the ink, setting up the network, and running test prints. The only big difference is that you have to load six ink cartridges instead of the two or three. But overall, a very easy setup process. As far as performance, I can’t tell you enough about how great it is. There are some really cool features, like the hands-free, voice-activated printing. So cool! You can also print directly from the printer, or from your computer, tablet or phone. It is also able to print without relying on your router. Cool stuff! And lastly, the print quality is excellent. I’m sure the extra ink cartridges has a lot to do about it. But the pictures are perfect quality. All in all, a really great printer!! This is a review for the Epson Expression Photo XP-970 Printer that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality The Epson Expression Photo Printer is easily an amazing product. It's the best qulaity from a printer I have experienced yet. The design and function of this printer is very detailed and versatile. The setup was pretty much explanatory and clearly outlined in the instructions so its easy to assemble and configure! The only thing to note is to be cautious when installing the ink cartridges as some ink can get on your fingers, but it is avoidable. Upon setup the printer conducts a test on paper with the inks that you have to evaluate which sample is best to ensure maximum quality. The printer functions are also easy to access due ro the screen being adjustable for viewing with ease. The tray automatically slides iself out to catch printed paper, a plus! These advanced functions make printing so easy and quick its no joke. The number of functions is also outstanding! These include photo sized photo printing (a separate photo sized photo load tray), document printing, document scanning, etc. Very impressed and would have purchased if not tested!!!
